CSS Sass Basics Add Reusable Logic to Your Sass Handling Errors with @error and @warn

@warn did not show a message in the console. @error worked fine and stopped the compiler.

When I changed @error to @warn the compiler kept going and the page displayed but back in the console there were no warnings. Has something changed with this feature?

Hi, Heidi :) The exact same thing happened to me too. I'd also like to know about what you mentioned. Thank you for posting this.

As far as I can tell, the difference is that warnings can be turned off (i.e. set to not display in the console), and since they don't stop the compilation, it just keeps going.

Errors, on the other hand, stop the compiler and will show the error inline where it occurred, so you should always see something in the console.
